A SCHOOLGIRL could see her anti-bullying lyrics turned into a song and performed by one of her pop idols.

Natasha Davison, from Peterlee, entered the Find Your Voice challenge on Facebook, with the words for Just Be You coming to her in only 10 minutes.

The contest is fronted by The X Factor’s Amelia Lily, who will sing the winning words once they are put to music.

The competition’s leaders, the BeatBullying charity and Make Mine Milk campaign, say almost 200 entries were sent into the judges, which include the singer and a team from teenage magazine Shout.

Votes are being taken via the Make Mine Milk Facebook page until Monday.

Natasha says meeting the star as part of the first prize and having her words performed by her would make her “dream come true”.

The 16-year-old, who plans to go into midwifery once she leaves The Academy, at Shotton Hall, said: “When I got the call to say I was in the top five, I was so excited, I was nearly crying.

“The voting has been extended, so I hope to get as many as I can before it closes.

“I wrote this from my own experiences, as well as other people’s.”

Amelia Lily said: “I selected the five finalists from a shortlist and I was really moved by the entries.

“Bullying affects so many young people and can have a devastating effect on their lives, so it’s great to be able to do something that encourages people to take a stand against it, which I hope Find Your Voice will.”
